Grant Me The Serenity
Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way. Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.
When I think about the goodness of Jesus and all that He has done for me… My soul cries out Hallelujah. Thank you for snatching me out of the lifestyle of addiction. Thank you for adding purpose, truth, and self-love into my heart. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
In the midst of my sin, you spoke to me thru your Word and gifted me with love, understanding, acceptance, and wisdom. Favor my child and the children around this nation with the same gifts. Give them a ear to hear so that they will know and follow the voice of their Great Shepherd.
Strengthen my child’s (say name of child) metaphysical state and correct any dysfunctional behaviors and perspectives that may lead him/her to the path of escape. Stabilize their emotions, help them when they’re angry and teach them not to sin. Lord, open their eyes to better options and solutions for piecing together their broken heart.
I pray that you give my child and children around this nation a full understanding of addiction and its path of destruction and death. I pray the desire to have uncommitted unsafe sex with multiple partners, withhold from eating and/or overeating, shop excessively, watch porn, pop pills, gambling, shoot up, snort, vape, tranq, shroom, trip, candy flip, fight the beast, turn up, chase the dragon, ride the white horse, speedball, tweak, blaze, get faded or burn are turned off and unresponsive. I pray these desires lay dormant forever.
I pray earnestly for the addicted children of this world. Please enlighten their eyes of understanding, open their heart to receive your love, and teach their praying parents and community leaders how to effectively help. Today I pray that the seed of sobriety is planted and watered in their mind. I ask you Father to increase the seed exponentially. Grant them the serenity to accept the things that cannot be changed, the courage to change the things they can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
I pray the desire to learn, grow, study, educate, style, play musical instruments, dance, travel, photograph, video capture, cook, read, minister, artistically express emotion, act, draw, sing, paint, play sports, learn God’s word, all other positive purposes are enhanced and supported by praying parents and community leaders.
No weapon formed against my child or other children shall be able to prosper. I plead the Blood of Jesus against the metaphysical disease of addiction. Our children will not be an addicts, our children will not maintain a false balance. The works of their hands shall be blessed. They are the head and not the tale, the lender and not the borrower. Though they may be tempted by the enemy, they shall not submit.
In Jesus Name I pray…
